Old Trafford side to launch formal bid for Eagles attacker.
Man United will hope to complete a £6m deal to sign highly-rated Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha within 48 hours according to the Daily Mail.
Plenty of Fulham vs Man United tickets available
The Old Trafford side will make a formal bid for the 20 year old, having been monitoring his progress for the best part of six months. Sir Alex Ferguson will hope that the club’s offer will be accepted by the South London club, even though it is some way short of the Selhurst Park club’s valuation.
The England international is key to Ian Holloway’s hopes for promotion to the Premier League and therefore any deal could well include a proviso that the player be loaned back to the Eagles for the remainder of the season.
Ferguson may feel that Zaha could act as a long term replacement for Portuguese winger Nani, who appears to be surplus to requirements at Man United having made just four Premier League starts this season.
